Song Name: Dekhite Dekhite

Official Name: Siddhi Lalasa Song 2

Author: Bhaktivinoda Thakura

Book Name: Gitamala

Language: Bengali





dekhite dekhite,  bhulibo vā kabe,


nayane heribo,  braja-pura-śobhā,

nitya cid-ānanda-moya



bṛṣabhānu-pure,  janama loibo,

yāvaṭe vivāha ha’be

braja-gopī-bhāva,  hoibe swabhāva,

āno-bhāva nā rohibe



nija-siddha-deha,  nija-siddha-nāma,


rādhā-kṛpā-bale,  lobhibo vā kabe,




jamunā-salila-  āharaṇe giyā,

bujhibo yugala-rasa

prema-mugdha ho’ye,  pāgalinī-prāya,

gāibo rādhāra yaśa



1) When will I be able to leave this plane of my gross bodily identity far behind? Within a split second, I will completely forget about all these false external affairs and behold the exquisite beauty of the transcendental realm of Vraja, which is completely paraded with eternal, conscious bliss.


2) I shall then take birth in Barsana, the town of King Vrsabhanu, and I will be married nearby in the town of Yavata. My sole disposition and character shall be that of a simple cowherd girl, and I shall not know any other mood.


3) I shall obtain my own eternal spiritual body, transcendental name, and specific type of beauty and dress for the pleasure of Krsna. And when, by the power of Sri Radha's causeless mercy, will I be allowed entrance into the pastimes of divine love of Krsna?


4) As I go with a water pot on my head to draw water from the Yamuna river, I shall cherish remembrance of the mellows of conjugal love that unite Sri Radha with Krsna. Thus being enchanted by Their divine love, I will madly sing the glories of Sri Radha just like a raving lunatic.
